Come to the Beach Sunday for Our Open House and Bring a Smile to Your Face (and Make These Kids Happy Too)
Sunday promises to bring sunshine and a return to mid-60 temperatures -- a perfect day for a walk on Good Harbor Beach, a stroll along Gloucester Harbor or shopping on Bearskin Neck in Rockport. It's sure to bring a smile to your face -- similar to the smiles you see on these faces. However, these children aren't reacting to the sand, sun and surf -- these are smiles for their friends from Por Cristo, a Masschusetts-based non-profit that has been helping some of the poorest families in this South American country. This Sunday, these two worlds come together as we hold our annual Taste of Latin America Open House in support of Por Cristo's work. We'll treat you to some South American delicacies -- courtesy of Chef Mark Sapienza of the Langham Hotel. And you'll be able to shop for jewelry, scarves, blankets and other items from Ecuador -- with all proceeds going to support Por Cristo. So please come visit -- anytime from 2-5pm on Sunday November 20 -- and put a smile our your face, and on the faces of children like this.
